today i am saying happy birthday to the best father a girl could ask for. from our ‘daddy/daughter’ days at dave & busters to pacing on the sidelines at my soccer games, to walking me down the aisle… you have always been right by my side. and even though we are miles away now and i miss you every single day, i know that you’re still right here with me, praying for me, thinking about me & still guiding me. never more than a phone call away. i hope that brian will have the same connection with madison that i have with you and that she will get to have daddy/daughter days with him. she will be lucky if he grows into half the father that you are, and i know he will. watching them together makes me realize how much i love you & how life is so cyclical. so happy birthday daddy. we wish we were there to celebrate with you!!
xoxo P.Bug, Brian, Madison & Gus
